About the Book
Salim Ali was as active in the field of conservation as he was in Ornithology, He was probably the only person who had travelled to all the obscure regions of the Indian Sub-continent at one time or another of his life and knew the country, its forests andn its birdlife intimately. He lived and worked for the birds of his land, to present these ethereal spirits of the air to his countryment and to the world.
